Users of Suggested Sites cannot receive accurate recommendations when you use sites that enable SSL in Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7.
This hotfix enables usage history from a small subset of sites that enable SSL, to be shared securely with Microsoft, in addition to the history from other sites that is already available. This history is only shared if the user has opted-in to Suggested Sites.
